Up-Cycling Susan



My love and I recently had a conversation about re-cycling,
he is very knowledgeable on these subjects you know, he takes great delight in explaining
the details in depth to me which I very often forget,
I simply have not got the capacity for it ;~)

On this one occasion though it has penetrated very deeply!
He explained how some types of garbage cannot be re-cycled but must go to land-fill,
I sighed "oh dear",
He said "but what they do is this,
they layer up the garbage with other composites
then insert pipes through the layers in-order to tap off the methane gas to be used for other purposes".

This connected on more than one level for me,
I recently read these words but am not sure where so don't know who to credit - (please forgive me) 

'Let your pain become rocket fuel for Love'!

If we could harness our pain, emotional and physical - re-cycling it into love how powerful this would be.
I have had a good dose of both types of pain recently,
so I've been about trying this out and I think it's working,
I'm not sure on the exact formula just now but will be posting when it gets clearer.
I feel quite excited about this as when I get surges of pain I'm breathing in deeper
I'm thinking on comforting thoughts, and as I do my feelings are being soothed, my desperation seems to lift!
I feel like there is an exchange going on, that my thoughts are literally changing my physical reality!

I'm expanding my reasoning on how powerful and far reaching the above statement really is  ~
"If we could harness the pain of the world it may be possible to re-cycle it as rocket fuel for love"!

This is a wonderful, brilliant post, Sue. I think you are right. In this time when sorrows and pain seem so prevelant, let's keep using it to fuel our bigger and ever growing LOVE.
Love to you, Beautiful !

The ultimate, world-saving recycle. You're a heroine!
Yes! Transmuting pain into love by breathing into the pain and breathing out love. Wonderful discovery!

In the Buddhist tradition - and I am not a Buddhist, just read a lot of Buddhist books :) - anyway - in their tradition there is a practice called Tonglen where they do just as you are saying here. Breath into the pain and breath out love... Don't you just love how life presents us with these discoveries in many different ways!

Interesting photo!

Hope your health improves soon! C

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
